Module description

EXCEPTIONALLY, TO MEET PROFESSIONAL STATUTORY REGULATORY BODY REQUIREMENTS (GPHC - GENERAL PHARMACEUTICAL COUNCIL, HPC - HEALTH PROFESSIONS COUNCIL, NMC - NURSING AND MIDWIFERY COUNCIL) STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE A PASS MARK OF 50% FOR THE PORTFOLIO AND AN OVERALL MARK OF 50% IN ORDER TO PASS THIS MODULE. THIS REQUIREMENT OVERRIDES THE STANDARD ANGLIA RUSKIN PASS MARK OF 40% WHICH IS INDICATED AT THE FOOT OF SECTION 9. THIS RELATES DIRECTLY TO THE NEED FOR STUDENTS TO DEMONSTRATE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY ASSESSMENT CRITERIA RELATING TO ASSESSMENT GRADING CRITERIA OF 50% OR ABOVE. The educational programme aims to: - To prepare nurses, midwives, specialist community public health nurses, chiropodists/podiatrists, physiotherapists and pharmacists to prescribe safely, appropriately and cost effectively as independent and supplementary prescribers OR - To prepare radiographers to prescribe safely, appropriately and cost effectively as supplementary prescribers AND - To provide an opportunity for inter-professional students to debate, analyse and synthesise key issues within safe prescribing practice and its contribution to health care Admission to the module is dependent on the following criteria: - 3 years qualified for nurses & AHPs, 2 years for pharmacists with professional registration - A clinical need for prescribing - Sufficient knowledge of the practice area in which prescribing will take place - A current Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check has been undertaken Nurses, midwives, chiropodists/podiatrists and physiotherapists should be assessed by their employer as competent at history taking, assessment and diagnosis, or if not should concurrently undertake a module to meet this requirement. Applicants must be able to demonstrate appropriate numeric skills. The student should identify a designated medical supervisor who meets the Department of Health (2006) requirements, prior to commencement of the programme and should be allocated 78 hours of clinical supervision time (90 hours for a pharmacist). The programme of study will be offered as a traditional University based taught route OR as an electronic supported learning route, with students from both routes joining together for selected taught sessions encouraging inter-professional networking and learning. The electronic supported learning route will utilise a CD Rom programme accessed by the student and supported and facilitated by the programme tutors, all other aspects of the programme will remain the same. The assessment process has been developed using the stated standards of the regulatory bodies - NMC (2006), GPhC (2010)and HPC (2004) assessing both theory and practice together with their integration. The practice assessment will be undertaken in the practice area and consists of three elements: - - Consultation based OSCE assessed to a standardised proforma. - Completion of a log of the required 78 hours clinical supervision (90 hours for a pharmacist) and - An assessment of competency against the NMC (2006) Knowledge, skills and competency framework OR an assessment of competency against the NPC competency frameworks for pharmacists (2006) OR allied health professionals (2004). The above will be undertaken by a designated medical practitioner. The theory assessment will consist of: - - 2 examinations: These will be undertaken in week 20 following completion of the taught elements and will specifically assess learning outcomes 1,2 & 5. - one 1/2 hour calculations paper (MCQ/short answer questions) with a 100% pass mark, - One 1 and 1/2 hour pharmacology and prescribing issues paper (MCQ/short answer questions); requiring an 80% pass mark as per the NMC (2006) requirements. - Portfolio of evidence demonstrating integration of and reflection on the application of pharmacological theoretical knowledge to practice and development as a safe competent prescriber through two full prescribing episodes of 2000 words each (total 4000 words). Throughout all the assessment elements any action or omission that is considered to be unsafe or illegal practice will constitute a fail grade being awarded. To meet PSRB requirements (NMC, GPhC & HCP) students are required to achieve a pass mark of 50% for the portfolio and an overall mark of 50% to pass this module. This requirement overrides the standard Anglia Ruskin pass mark of 40%. This relates to the requirement for students to demonstrate achievement at the 50% descriptors as a minimum standard.
